Meeting a Boa Constrictor
Shopping in my local town centre, I cam across a group of people marveling at what appeared to be two people holding large snakes. At a closer look, the couple worked at a newly opened reptile specialist, and they were promoting their new business with the help of two rather nonchalant looking boa constrictors.
I'd never held a snake before, but these seemed perfectly happy to be handled, so after snapping a few photos of these stunning creatures, I decided to tick a box off my bucket list and hold one myself.
It was such an amazing experience! The boa was quite heavy, and kept slipping off my shoulders, but it appeared quite content with the fact that I was holding it. Its skin felt like bumpy leather, but it was a beautiful brown-gold shade with a gorgeous pattern!
If you're thinking about keeping a boa constrictor as a pet, there are many things you'll need to consider about their maintenance - as they are an exotic animal! Find out more info on The Urban Python or ask at a specialist reptile shop.
